Although reports have been submitted to the 
Department on all citizens councils concerning which 
we have conducted investigations and inquiries to date, 
the Department has indicated the activities of these 
organizations do not fall within the purview of Executive 
Order 10450* In view of this fact, there is no basis 
upon which to base justification for further inquiry. 
Therefore, you are instructed to immediately discontinue 
inquiries concerning all citizens councils upon receipt 
of this letter. It is your responsibility to also 
immediately notify auxiliary offices of the discontinuance 
of the investigation. 

In order that the Bureau may continue to carry 
out its responsibilities of keeping interested Government 
agencies informed of information of interest to them, you 
must continue your efforts to keep abreast of developments 
in order that the Bureau may be apprised of any situation 
which indicates a potential for violence. In obtaining 
information, however, absolutely no inquiries are to be 
made by you. You must secure the desired information 
through close scrutiny of the public press plus whatever 
information may be volunteered to you.

Letter to SAC, Atlanta 
Re; CITIZENS COUNCILS 


With respect to the use of confidential 
informants, I want it clearly understood that no 
informant is to be given any assignment in connection 
with obtaining information regarding the activities of 
citizens councils without prior Bureau authority. If 
you have a confidential informant already reporting on 
citizens councils matters you may continue to accept 
information volunteered by the informant but you must 
not give him any additional assignments in this field. 

If you feel it is necessary for some specific reason to 
continue an informant in a particular citizens council 
you must immediately advise the Bureau, together with 
the identity of the informant, his reliability and your 
assurance that continued operation of the informant will 
not result in any embarrassment to the Bureau* 

Each office receiving copies of this letter 
must submit to the Bureau a monthly summary of information 
concerning the activities of citizens councils in your 
respective territories. The first such letter is to be 
submitted to reach the Bureau by January 15 ^ 1957, and 
each succeeding letter must be submitted to reach the 
Bureau by the fifteenth of each month. This summary, 
which shall consist of an original and seven copies, 
must be submitted in memorandum form suitable for dissemi- 
nation and forwarded to the Bureau by cover letter. These 
sximmary memoranda and your cover letter must bear the 
caption "Citizens Councils, (name of field office)". 

Each of these siimmary memoranda must also be dated. 

As in the past, information received concerning 
citizens councils which requires expeditious handling 
must not be delayed for inclusion in the monthly summary 
but must be furnished to the Bureau promptly by whatever 
means of communication is required by the nature of the 
information. 



Letter to SAC, Atlanta 
Reg CITIZEi'JS COUNCILS 


This matter must receive your personal attention 
and it is your responsibility^ insofar as is possible, 
to see to it that the Bureau -will continue to be in a 
position to furnish pertinent information concerning 
potential violence to interested Government agencies. 

With respect to the administrative handling of 
current cases, you should submit a closing report "within 
30 days from the aate of this letter. This report should 
incorporate any information which has been obtained to 
date not previously reported. If there is very little 
information to be reported, you may at your discretion sub 
mit a closing letter. On the administrative page of the 
closing report or in the closing letter make reference to 
this letter in order that the administrative handling at 
the Seat of Government may be facilitated , 

The fact that we are discontinuing our inquiries 
concerning citizens councils is not to be discussed or 
made known in any manner to anyone outside your own office 
This includes your confidential informants.

Rebulet to Atlanta dated 10-9-57. 

My letter 3-15-57, Instant caption, reflects that no 
organization which falls within the category of citizens 
councils has ever existed In the territory of this division 
and no subsequent change In this connection has been noted. 

The principal focal point of pro-segregation 
activity In this territory continues to be the National i 

Citizens Protective Association, Inc. (NCPA) , IS - X (Buflle ° 
105-16510), whose headquarters are located In St. Louis, . 

which, according to Bulets to St. Louis 12-8-55 and 2-3-56 * 

both captioned "Citizens Councils and States ' Rights Movements/ 
IS - X", was construed as not falling within this category. | 
Closing report dated 7-26-57 was submitted In this Investigate 
per Bulet 6-3-57 "National Citizens Protective Association, | 
IS - X" In view of decision by Department that activities of 
NCPA were not such as to bring It within purview of EO 10450. 


In passing, as a matter of general Information, the 
only other anti-negro "organization" currently existing In thM^ 
territory is "-Pbp Ci hi ?:pn.ct ■ rinunp.n nf the Mid-West" . 

According to land |who have both furr^Shed ip I 

reliable Information In the past. It was brought Into^^^lngV^y^ 
as a paper organization In early 1957 by WILLIAM M^^LORI /\ 
of St. Louis, who was expelled from both NCPA mem^i^^hip^ and 
from Its executive board in the summer of 1956~for“ the sole 
purpose of publishing a "one man" monthly publication styled 
"The Citizens Council of the Midwest" . These sources have b7o 
advised that PLORI has been employing the words "citizens 
councils" for purposes of prestige and without the consent 
of the Citizens Councils of America with which it reportedly 
Is In no way connected or affiliated. ^ ^

The aforementioned publication, subscription rate of 
$2.00 per year. Is In four page letter size form and Its 
articles, which are anti-negro, anti-Semitic and antl-Communlst, 
frequently reflect misspellings, poor English and Improper 
punctuation. The only address noted on Its Issues Is Post 
Office Box 1957# Meramec Station, St. Louis, Mo., which, according 
to local Post Office officials, was rented on II-15-56 by W. M. 
PLORI of St. Louis on behalf of "Citizens Councils of the Midwest^

have never reflected the name of any official In Its masthead or

it is 

area would promptly come to the attention of NCPA officials 
who are extremely jealous of the position of their organization 
and Its monthly publications and who are ever vigilant as to 
possible competitors In this field. It Is noted that In the 
past, Items of Information concerning various Citizens Councils 
throughout the South, as menti oned at NCPA Executive Board me etings 
which were formerly regularly I I 

were reported by them. In view of the positions attained by 
these Informants, It Is submitted that the Bureau may desire 
to reconsider their present status, as well as their future 
position, which was necessitated by the closing of the NCPA 
Investigation. (See mylets 6-l4 and 9-16-57 and Bulet 7-2-57

Bureau may desire their complete reactivation. If possible. 

In NCPA from these standpoints as their activity henceforth 
will be confined to receipt of NCPA literature with Infrequent 
visits to NCPA headquarters. 


Plans for receiving Information as to the formation of 
any citizens councils In this area also Includes review of two

MISS'Oyil WHITi ¥©UTS^ 

COUNCIL FORMED 

Attention Teen-Agers and Parents: Todsiy, 
more than ever before, the youth of America 
is being flooded with integrationlst propa- 
ganda. This integrationlst propaganda they 
receive through various Institutions, such 
as schools and newspapers, is all the In- 
formation that many receive on the subject. 
So, naturally, many of the youths of today 
are taking this race-mixing propaganda at 
face value and, especially in the Northern 
States, are becoming integrationists. 

We feel -that something should be done 
about it by the youth themselves. A group 
of teen-agers In St. Louis, Missouri, has 
formed the Missouri White Youth Council 
and we hope that eventually all patriotic 
White teen-agers in the United States will 
join. We plan to give the youth of America 
the other side of the story so they can see 
how they were misled by the Communists 
and the do-gooders. 

The Youth Council plans to help lead the 
youth of America out of the maze of in- 
tegral ionist propaganda and into the way of 
God, the way of segregation. If you know of, 
or if you are a White teen-ager between the 
ages of 14 and 20, and are interested in 
joining or forming a White Youth Council, 
write to;

Elecia Officers 

Delegates from 15 states met at Knoxville, 
Tennessee, Dec. 14th and 15th to choose 
officers, adopt by-laws and a platform for 
the United White Party. The following 
officers were chosen; Arthur B. Cole, 
LaPollette. Tennessee. National Chairman, 
James Bagwell, Greenville, South Carolina, 
Vice Chair than; Ned Dupes, Knoxville, 
Tennessee. Secretary-Treasurer and Matt 
Koehl, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, National 
Organizer. The United White Party is the 
only political party in America dedicated 
solely to the White Race and its preserva- 
tion, racial integrity, states rights, segrega- 
tion and Christian principles. It opposes 
the NAACP, the Anti-Defamation League 
and all other race-mixing individuals and 
organizations. The 15 states represented 
were: Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, 

Georgia, Illinois. Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, 
Missouri, New York, North Carolina. Ohio, 
South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin. 
P. O. Box 2161, Knoxville, Tennessee. 


IT'S WORTH $50,000,000,000 

The WS has frequently pointed out that it 
is the White taxpayers who build schools, 
hospitals and public housing for the negroes 
and pay their welfare and Aid to Dependent 
Childrens’ checks. Now along comes P. L. 
Prattis, Editor of the negro Courier, who 


Claims White America owes all this and ;nuch 
more to the blacks. Prattis has it all fig- 
ured out that America owes $50,000,000,000 
to the negroes for making slaves out cf thr;ii 
for 244 years, k'ost White Americans would 
be happy to pay the descendants of the ox- 
s laves $50,000,000,000 if they would takf it 
back to Africa with them and stay there. 


KOINONI A FARM 


Continued from page 5 

apolis, S/ar,. the Minnesota Friends of 
Koinonia asked churches to set up booths 
at which parishioners could buy pecans. 
Using the slogan “Build Good Will," (see 
picture on page 5), Minnesota churches have 
sold about 9,000 tons of Koinonia's pecan 
meats. Instead of “building good will," the 
money raised by the churches will be 
to build more hatred, dissension and vio- 
lence to feed the flames of the War against 
the White South. If the “liberal'’ church 
people of Minnesota believe so strong^' in 
Communist-inspired integration in Georgia, 
they should be willing to practice it them- 
selves. Since the last census reported only 
14,000 negroes in the entire State, Minne- 
sota’s ardent Integrationists should Invite 
their “colored brothers" to move to Minne- 
sota instead of paying for attempted race- 
mixing in Georgia.

2,000,000 PIECES OF LITERATURE DISTRIBUTED 

As of Dec. 3Ist, the National Citizens Protective 
Association had printed and distributed over 2,000,000 
pieces of literature. The past year saw far more material 
flowing out of our office than ever before. On all sides 
there are encouraging signs that America is awakening 
to the menace of racial integration. The White Sentinel 
the White American News Service and the numerous tracts 
leaflets and booklets which we print have played a vital 
role in this. We believe 1958 will be a banner year. Why 
not become a part of this effort by ordering extra copie s 
of The White Sentinel to distribute? Begin the New Year

GOV. VARDAMAN ON THE RACE ISSUE 

Back in 1907, the then Governor of 
Mississippi, James K, Vardaman answered 
a reporter's questions on giving the ^egro 
the vote by saying: “The negro should 

never have been trusted with the ballot. He 
is different from the White man. He is 
dongenitally unqualified to exercise the 
responsible duty of citizenship. He is 
physically, mentally, morally, racially and 
eternally the White man's inferior. There is 
nothing in the history of his race, nothing 
in his Individual character, nothing in his 
achievements of the past nor his promise 
for the future which entitles him to stand 
side by side with the White man at the 
ballot box.”

farcp all companies and unions doing busi- 
ness with the Government to hire and promote more and more 
negroes at the expense of the White workers. This is called 
"Fair (sic) Employment Practices" (FEPC).

Nixon Threatens Private Business 

Employers with Government contracts are forced to hire 
negroes provided by the Urban League instead of Whites by 
threats from Tricky Dicky Nixon that their contracts will be 
cancelled unless they allow the Urban League to dictate 
their hiring and promotion policies. Sen. Thurmond said he- 
was against any program for forcing the hiring of negroes 
instead of Whites and that he was "bitterly opposed to hav- 
ing any group which is outside the Government dictate 
policy to the Government or any of its agencies." 

The Senator also charged that Eisenhower's Committee on 
Government Contracts "is attempting to force unwanted em-

ployment relationships and is permitting both 
the Urban League and the NAACP to dictate 
policy to Government agencies and employers 
concerned." Elsenhower's Committee and Its 
anti-White, discriminatory policies were not 
authorized or established by Congress. They 
are the -result of an Executive Decree made 
by Eisenhower to bribe negroes into the 
Republican Party. Taking White men's jobs 
away and giving them to negroes is one of 
the schemes thought up by the Palace Guard, 
Nixon and Knowlond to cajole negroes into 
the Republicem Party. 

For seven years, the National Citizens Pro- 
tective Association and its publications have 
exposed the Urban League for intimidating 
employers to hire negroes instead of Whites. 
Sen. Thurmond's charges, as well as the 
documented charges made against the Urban 
League in V. S. News & World Report, should 
much to cause Chests and Funds to stop 
luppcffting the Urban League. Business and 
-.mlons who we being coerced and intimidated 
by the Urban League should cease contribu- 
ting to any Community Chest or United Fund 
as long as it subsidizes the Urban League. 

How the President’s Committee on Govern- 
ment Contracts Works 

For displeasing the Committee in the num- 
ber of negroes hired, fired, promoted or d(^- 
moted, a company's Government contracts 
can be cancelled and no new Government 
business given to it. U. $. News & World 
Report carried a four page atricle on how ihe 
Committee works, excerpts of which follow: 


Ru/es for emp/oyers. Conti actors c an- 
not mention race, religion or national 
origin in their “help wan tern!” advertise- 
ments. Application forms may not ask the 
race of the job seeker. 

Front-office jobs, apprenticeships and 
job-training programs are supposed to be 
open to Negroes on an equal basis with 
whites. There is to be no discrimination 
in rates of pay, firings, demotions or 
transfers. 

Notices announcing the policy of 
'equal economic opportunity” must be 
potsted in factories and company employ- 
ment ofiSces. And the employers must in- 
sert no-discrimination clauses into all 
contracts awarded to subcontractors. 
Thus the prime contractor, the man with 
U. S. Government contract, is re- 
4>onsible for seeing to it that none of 
subcontractors discriminates. 

To supplement the complaint process, 
Cmnmittee now has set up what it 
lailb a Compliance Review Program. 
Burhig the kst year this called for visits 
investigators to 508 plants, most of 
metropolitan areas.

cmploy^^s if they were 
League to recruit Nc- 
if Negro schools had 
oeini consulbiki. They looked to see if the 


no-disevimination posters were up in the 
plants. 

Many agencies consult the NAACP 
and the Urban League about complaints. 
“They know the general conditions in 
the area,” a procurement officer explains. 
Sometimes the employer is advised to 
contact the Urban League in hiring Ne- 
groes. An official of the Nixon Committee 
adds; “No one compels employers to go 
to the Urban League. We don’t revoke a 
contract if they don’t use the services of 
the League. We just direct attention to it.” 

Enforcing the rules. In practice, the 
Committee has been serving as a clear- 
inghouse for complaints. Actual enforce- 
ment is left up to the Government agency 
supervising the contract. 

Once a complaint is mailed in by a 
worker or, as frequently happens, is for- 
warded by the National Association for 
the Advancement of Colored People or 
the Urban League, tlie machinery starts 
to function. 

Thus, employers still haven’t felt tlie 
full impact of the integration-in-jobs pro- 
gram. It is to take shape in future federal 
directive.s, in visits from Go\'erniuent in- 
spectors, in action on complaints. You 
will be hearing more about these— and

ions, on industrial commiinitic's—during

hiring of unskilled (negro) workers." (Empha- 
sis added by WS). 

That Is the crux of the situat.ion. Nixon's 
Committee and all FEPC laws are to force 
employers and unions to hire and promote ne- 
groes simply because they ore negroes even 
though they ore unqualified for the |obs. If 
the enemies of the White Race have their way, 
a White man will have to blacken his face in 
order to get a job.

’ ' puboB 'Housing 



Patrolman Nate Jordan inspects vandalism at the Wendell 
Pruitt (all-negro) housing project in St. Louis. Police call 
the 2 negro and 2 integrated housing projects in the area 
‘*New Korea” because of their high crime rate. The Globe- 
Oemocrcn stated: "Press clippings from every public housing 
city in the country show concern over the increase of problem 
lamilies, vandalism, juvenile delinquency, adult crime and 
filth in the projects” and added: "Some families have to be 
taught to use bath rooms, others not to heave garbage out of 
the windows. Still others must be shown - under threat of 
eviction - how to use a mop and broom and the value of dis- 
infectant." Another reason Whites leave when a project be- 
comes integrated is that they object to negro couples carry- 
ing on sexual activities in halls, elevators, stairways, base- 
ments, etc. 

Detroit’s Experience 

' - . '' orr segregated ^ for Macks 

cx x>ui a federal Court ordered them integrated 

basing its decision on the Supreme Court's Black Monday 
ruling. The 3 all-negro projects are still all-negi'o. Four are 
integrated and only one remains White. One of the integrated 
projects is 98.2% negroid. The others are getting as bad. 
The Detroit Free Press said: "Detroit faces the distinct 

possibility that its public housing may become almost en- 
tirely for negroes. 

Negro housing in negro districts is one thing, but integrated 
housing in White districts is another. Before the land was 
cleared for the Edward J. Jefferies Project in Detroit, the 
area was White. Now the project itself is almost all negro 
and the blacks are spreading like a cancerous growth through 
out the entire area. Another victory for "integration,” In 
Detroit, 53% of public housing tenants are negroes although 
the City's negro population is only 19%. But they are not 
satisfied and are accusing the Housing Commission of "dis- 
crimination" in the selection of tenants. 

Southern Projects Now Threatened 

Projects in the North are not yet completely negroized. but 


made that 

dtli. A suit is pending ia 

asking that the court order its projects to be integrated, Th) 


NAACP has threatened the Houston, Texas, Housing Author- 
ity with court action unless it willingly integrates. This is 
only the beginning. 


St. Louis County Fights Public Housing 


Threatened with a public housing project at Jefferson 
Barracks in alTWhite South St. Louis County, the people 
acted. First a suit was filed asking plans for the project be 
halted. Failing in this, the County Council was asked to halt 
all operations. Defeated by a 3 to 2 vote, petitions were 
circulated to bring the question to a vote. In a short time 
nearly 21,000 signatures of registered voters were obtained 
and aTeferendum will be placed on the ballot next fall to 
abolish the St. Louis County Housing Authority altogether. 
If this proposal passes, there will be no public housing pro- 
jects built in St. Louis County. Unfortunately, the City of 
St. Louis has no connection with the County. Similar action 
Should be undertaken here to prevent the erection of any 
additional public housing. 


Public Housing a Failure 


Mayor Robert Wagner released an extensive six-month study 
of public housing in New York City. The study revealed: 
"Serious deterioration of the porjects; an enormous backlog 
of maintenance work to be done; too many undesirable fami- 
lies making for a hard core of problem tenants who cause 
serious trouble for their neighbors and the authority.” It 
concluded: "The City’s public housing projects bear many 
strong resemblances to the slums they were supposed to 
eliminate.” 


Write your Senators and Congressmen today to vote against 
any additional funds for public housing. Stop this harmful 
waste of the taxpayers' money. 



One reason negroes clamor for more and more cheap Govern- 
ment housing is the filth in which many of them live, such 
as the picture from Harlem shown above. They ignore the 
fact that houses don't turn themselves into slums - people do. 
Houses don't make the filth which litters negro slum areas - 
people do. Until City Health and Building Inspectors enforce 
the laws and courts begin handing down stiff penalties for 
violations, they will continue to turn their areas into slums. 
Then tliey demand White taxpayers build them new homes. 



The Rev, Milton Galamison, nepo President of the Brooklyn 
NAACP, goes over plans to racially integrate more New York 
schools with Mrs. Annie Stein, Education Chairman of the 
branch. Mrs. Stein is not a negro. Neither does she have 
children going to school. Her husband is Arthur Stein, who 
is not only a 5th Amendment Communist, but who has been 
accused by the House Committee on Cn-American Activities 
with being a recuiting agent for the Communist Party. 

13 Year Old White Girl Raped by negro 
in Basement of Integrated School 

The rape of a 13 year old White girl in the basement of a 
New York junior high school by a 15 year old negro, a fellow 
student, not only was sent out over the AP wires on Jan. 23, 
but brought renewed demands for the protection of children 
(especially White children) in New York City’s foul, racially 
integrated schools. School Supt., Jansen replied that there 
had been a uniformed policeman on duty in the school at the 
time the child was raped, but that ''he can’t be everywhere 
at once.” This brutal negro attack on a young White girl is 
just one of thousands of crimes committed by negroes against . 
Whites each year in the cesspools that New York’s integrated 
public schools have become. 

School Pregnancies In Alarming Climb 

In the first 2 months of school last fall, 1,250 pregnant, 
unwed girls 15 or under were dismissed from New York’s 
public schools. This is an alarming increase over other years. 
When asked for comment by the New York Daily News. School 
Supt., Jansen became furious that the information had leaked 
out and not only refused to discuss it but also ordered his 
staff members to ke^p mum. Naturally, it was not revealed 
how many of the 1,250 young girls were White or the race of 
the fathers, if the figures included girls 16, 17 and 18, the 
figure would be much higher. 

Grand* Jury Investigation 

Last November, Judge Samuel Liebowitz ordered a Grand 
Jury Investigation of lawlessness and terrorism in New 


York’s integrated schools. He also ordered an invesiigHU.in 
of why principals and teachers "clam up" about school crimes 
when police ask questions. The Judge charged the Grand 
Jury: "I call upon you to find out and^tell us how many hold- 
ups, intimidations and extortions have occured on public 
school premises: how many of these cases ever saw the light 
of day. HoW many young girls have been attacked on stairs 
by young degenerates: classes disrupted by hoodlums, 
school rooms and offices invaded by vandals who have made 
them shambles. Find out what is done to make the hoodlums 
check their artillery outside before coming to school." 

After a thorough investigation, the Grand Jury recommended 
uniformed policemen be assigned to all schools to patrol the 
corridors, the stairways and the recreation yards to "safe- / 
guard pupils and teachers from vicious elements and shock-/ 
ing incidents." It released crime figures (suppressed by the/ 
Board of Education) showing 1,280 arrests, 2,152 complaints 
of crimes and 2,572 cases of delinquency referred to the 
Juvenile Aid Bureau. All these arrests, crimes and deliii-/ 
quencies took place in or near New York’s integrated schools 
during the first 10 months of 1957. Crimes actually committe(j 
on school grounds included murders, rapes, felonious as/. ^ 
saults, narcotics, sodomies, burglaries and dangerous 
weapons. 


Integrated Schools Cause The Trouble 

New York's integrated schools have long been referred to 
as "blackboard jungles." With the increase of negroes and 
Puerto Rican negroes pouring into the City, has come a tre- 
mendous increase of crime and terror in the public schools. 
Some 907c of Puerto Ricans have negroid blood. The troubles 
now increasingly plaguing New York’s schools come from the 
integrated schools, not from those which are still largely 
segregated by virtue of being in White neighborhoods. School 
officials speak vaguely of "difficult schools," but fail to 
state that these "difficult schools" are either in all-negro- 
Puerto Rican or integrated districts and that they comprise 
about 25% of all elementary schools and nearly 33% of the 
junior high schools, not to mention High schools. The Board 
of Education suggests a dual system of education by estab- 
lishing a network of new schools and segregating the prob- 
lem students in these schools. 

Maurice Kessler, a 17 
year old negro, is brought 
into court to answer 
charges that he hurled 
liquid lye into a crowded 
class room at the Thomas 
Jefferson High School, 

Brooklyn, N. Y. The lye 
blinded one White boy, 
but doctors hope to be 
able to save his sight. 

Twenty others were spat- 
tered. The White boy, 

David Ozersky, had had 
the negro arrested 2 
weeks previously for 
molesting him sexually 
and the negro sought re- 
venge by attempting to 
blind him with the liquid 
lye. Chalk up another 
"victory** for racial in- 
tegration in the public 
schools.

RACE-MIXERS WANT MORE INTEGRATION 

The evil effects of pabllc school Integretloa ' ' 

dent in New York do not phase the mongrellzers kSo 
demand more and more mixing. Under the inceswftt 
prodding of the highly organized racial minority groups, 
led by the Urban League, the NAACP and their allies in- 
cluding the Communist Party, several schemes have been 
hatched to integrate every public school in New York City. 

The first scheme demanded by the Urban League and the 
NAACP was to transport negroes by bus and elevated trains 
many miles each day from their homes to all-White schools 
in different sections of the City. Whites were to be compelled 
to go to school in Harlem and other negro districts miles 
from their homes. That this is harmful to the children, both 
White and black, Is obvious, but race-mixers don't care about 
the children - they just want them integrated. Some 5,000 
negroes are now attending 60 formerly all-White schools in 
ofHor spctlons of the City. Many of them have to travel 8 and 
. j tmies each way in order for the privilege of getting in- 
tegrated with Whites. The Board of Education has refused 
to release any information on the number of White children 
forced to travel to Harlem each day. 

To justify this outrageous procedure, the Rev. Galamison 
(pictured on opposite page) said: ** Wholesome normal con- 
tact between the races is needed to destroy prejudices." 
What dhes he mean by "wholesome normal contacts" be- 
tween White girls and negro boys? He adds: "It seems to be 
a major concern of the anti-integrationists that if people 
have these ‘contacts' they may 'overcome these prejudices. 
They almost seem to be afraid that their children will get to 
like (or be like) negroes." 

Valerie Haw^kins, Education Director for the Urban League, 
strongly supported the carting of children all over the City 
each day. "When Whites force segregation through housing, 
it has the effect of stereotyping negro students as inferior. 

It is part of this stereotype that negro children have lower 
IQs and aren't good students," she said. Negro leaders real- 
ize negroes are inferior to Whites and hope by mixing in 
schools some of the Whites' intelligence, culture, behavior 
and morals will rub off on the blacks. They are not interested 
in the harm it does the White children. 

$15 000 000 Needed To Integrate 

Huiung utgrues in every White school in New York City 
and Whites in every negro school costs money. Appearing 
before the Board of Education, Edward S. Lewis, mulatto 
Executive Director of the Urban League of Greater New York, 
asked for an appropriation of 15,000,000 to "provide equal 
educational opportunities for our City’s minority children^ 
who have been educationally starved for decades." The 
additional money is needed to "implement the Board of Edu- 
cation's program for racially integrating the City's schools," 
he said. At the same time, the Urban League claims that 
school integration will "save money." 



Valerie Hawkins. Education Director for the Urban 
League of Greater New York, leads the fight against 
all-White neighborhoods, charging they foster segrega- 
ted schools. The Urban League in New York, as in 56 
other cities, is supported by "charity" funds. 

League Convention then unanimously voted to begin an "ag- 
gressive campaign" to put negroes into WhUe neighborhoods 
and housing projects. All this was done with the "charity" 
money the League receives from 57 Chests and Funds around 
the country, including New York City. 

LANDLORDS DENIED RIGHT 

TO CHOOSE TENANTS 

The Urban League joined forces with the NAACP and other 
racial, communistic and church groups to pass a law in New 
York City making it illegal for a landlord to chose his own 
tenants. The law covers all privately owned housing in the 
City except 1 and 2 family houses. To move into .a White 
residential area, all a negro has to do is find a vacancy and 
move in. N^w York .still has City rent control so the landlord 
can't charge the negro any more than the previous White 
tenant paid. If, for any reason, the landlord refuses to rent 
to the negro, New York's Corporation Counsel can haul the 
landlord Into court in the name of the City. With this law, 
the Urban League hopes to put a negro in every block of the 
City. 

When there are no longer any White neighborhoods, there 
will no longer be any segregated schools. Mayor Wagner has 
signed this bill, called New York*s Answer to Little Rock, 
and it goes into effect April 1st. 


"NEW YORK’S ANSWER TO LITTLE ROCK” 

It is generally agreed that in spite of transporting school 
children all over the City, New York's schools could not be 
completely integrated as long as White neighborhoods re- 
mained. So. the mongrelizers got busy to destroy every White 
neighborhood in New York. Speaking at the Urban League’s 
National Convention in 1955. its then President Robert 
Dowling declared: "Racial integration in schools would be 
worthless unless neighborhoods are mixed." The Urban 


Integrationist Wagnej And Ills Children 

Incidentally, Mayor Wagner is all for integration - that is 
for everyone else except his children. Both of his own 
children go to all-White private schools, one in New Hamp- 
shire and the other in Scarsdale. N. Y. Hypocricy, where is 
thy sting? 

The Real Estate Board fought the vicious anti-White bill 
declaring: "This bill is a vicious and ill-advised piece of 
legislation, an unenforceable law and a complete denial of

Boycott in South hurt 
Urban League branches 


NEW YOKE — Segregation- 
ist “hit-and-run boycotts” re- 
sulted in the separation of five 
Trhan League rho piers 

■ ^ t** 

at nng tne pasv year, according 
to the 1957 report of the Na- 
tional Urban League. 

Theodore W. Kheel, national 
League president, revealed that 
‘ a dozen other” local branches 
in Southern cities are “under 
constant attack.” 

Lester B. Granger, National 
Urban League director, said 
that the “hit-and-run” attacks 
range from withdrawal of fi- 
nancial support by “irresponsi- 
ble” mob leaders to the drop- 
ping of local leagues from the 
Community Chest rosters. 

LOCAL LEAGUES hit by the 
boycotts were listed by Mr. 
Granger as; Jacksonville, Fla., 
dropped from Chest after 1956 
boycott threat; Richmond, Va., 
“encouraged to resign”; New 
Orleans, dropped after being 
promised separate funds; Fort 
Worth, dropped without prior 


notification; and Little Rock, 
Ark., \oted withdrawal from 
Chest support after school dis- 
orders.

sands of scurriious Vaflets and 
pamphlets have been distribu- 
ted by segregationists attempt- 
ing to .ipple Us work.” 

On the brighter side the re- 
port declared that league 
branches had continued to re- 
ceive financial and moral sup- 
port even in those communities 
where they had capitulated, and 
that as a result of its Commerce 
and Industry Council and its 
S *^th :rn Industry Project, the 
League was able to report job 
gains “in the face of vitriolic 
ri.ciai controversy.” 

Also cited was the hiring of 
colored -.nployees for the first 
time by a Kentucky firm with 
20 southern plants, and formal 
agreement between the League 
and the United Auto Workers 
for the handling of complaints 
of racial discrimination in em-i

ing to lie in defense of the Urban League? Why are they 
willing to harm the worthwhile agencies in order to continue 
giving the St. Louis Urban League $80,000 a year? 


"JIM CROW" IS ON WAY 

OUT SAYS SUMMERFIELD 

Addressing the negro Elks, Postmaster General Summerfield 
said that 'Jim Crow’ and discrimination of negroes is being 
carefully and permanently eliminated from the Post Office 
Department. He revealed that in 1956 there were 112,000 ne- 
groes employed by the Department and that the Post Office 
has more negroes in white-collar and supervisory positions 
than any other department of the Government, "In 1955, alone, 
we upgraded more than 300' colored employees to supervisory 
positions in post offices, throughout the country." he said. 
He. gloated in the fact that negroes now hold positions of 
power and responsibility in the Department. Many negroes 
now boss White employees such as the General Foreman at 
Seattle, Wash., first Senior Assistant Supt., in New York City, 
the foreman assigned to floor work at Baltimore’s Main Post 
Office, etc. 


Summerfield is negroizing the Post Office Department with 
the resultant loss of efficiency and lowering the morale of 
White workers. The Post Office goes deeper in the red each 
year and now wants large postal increases. What a price to 
pay for integration. At a recent civil service examination for 
post office employment held in St. Louis, there were 38 ne- 
groes and only 2 Whites. The 2 Whites became so disgusted 
they refused to even take the examination and walked out. 
Postal service is declining and deficits are mounting, but 
Summerfield and the Administration are happy because negroes 
are getting special treatment and privileges. What matter how 
the Post Office is run as long as Ike gets the negro vote. 



Cora Brown of Detroit, a negress, is sworn in as Special 
Assistant General Council of the U. S. Post Office Depart- 
ment by General Council Abe McGregor while Postmaster 
General Arthur Summerfield looks on approvingly. Cora was 
formerly a Democratic State Senator, but quit the Democratic 
Party when she failed to be nominated for Congress and be- 
came a Republican.

in Noveni>er and then pas^jed. The unorgajii- 
zed White nmjority was no match for the 
highly organized racial minorities, the Com- 
munists, and the churches, who always co- 
operate with the Communists on any question 
involving negroes. The ivlvate propetty 
owner in New York City no longer has the 
right to decide whom be will rent his own 
property to. 

Whites Fleeing City 

The effect of compulsory integration has 
been a mass exodus of Whites from the City. 
In the past 7 years, New York's White popu- 
lation has declined by 720,000 while negroes 
and Puerto Ricans have increaised by 615,000. 
Percentage-wise, non-Whites have increased 
from 12^ to nearly 21%. Charles Abrams, 
Chairman of the State Commission Against 
Discrimination predicted: ''For some years 
to come, we can expect that the non-White 
population will continue to grow rapidly, 
both through a continuing high birth rate and 
a continuing in-migration." In the meantime 
New York City is practically bankrupt and 
Mayor Wagner is desperately appealing to the 
State Legislature to grant the City additional 
operating funds. The prospects for New York, 
called the richest city in the world, look 
very dim indeed. What a price it is paying 
for racial integration! 

Remember Little Rock 

The White citizens of New York City are 
too cowed, too intimidated, too unorganized

Office Department employees are already 
negroes.

Sir Alfred Bossom, Chairman of the Roya

This is what you good people of The White

finally a noted and brilliant scholar publicb 
agrees with you. 

A firm believer in White Supremacy 


to oppose the evil designs of the race-mixers 
who, like termites, are destroying the founda- 
tions of a once great and mighty city. Racial 
integration is corrupting and eating the very 
heart out of New York. Yet, from this mon- 
grelized, racial hodgepodge came the 'most 
violent outcries against the brave" parenta of 
Little Rock who bared their breasts to Fed- 
eral bayonets sent to force th«tm Into accep- 
ting racial integration. They were fighting 
for their children, their homes, their commu- 
nity. their way of life. They were fighting 
against the crime, corruption, immorality and 
degredatlon which follow integration like 
the "grim reaper." White Ameiica will le- 
roeraber Little Rock. It will remember the 
Federal bayonets and who sent them. The 
courageous action of the people of Little 
Rock has crystalized and solidified opposi- 
tion to race-mixing integration. Little Rock 
was the turning point In the bsittle for racial 
purity, for a Free, White America. 

CONGRESS FACED WITH 


INTEREST IN WHITE YOUTH

An attorney in Washington State . a Baptist 
minister in Alabama and others have inquired 
about fexming White Youth GounciLs in their

grow and expand rapidly. The need is great 
and unless our youth is reached with the 
message of racial purity, we shall awaken 
one day to find that our youth has been lost 
to us. The integrators are concentrating their 
efforts on capturing the White youth. This 
must be resisted and fought. By helping to

A source has advised that a member of the Communist 
Party (CP) of Missouri attended a conference in Chicago, 
Illinois, on December 28-29, 1963, for the purpose of initiating 
a "call"' to the new youth organization, and plan for a 
founding convention to be held in June, 1964. The expenses 
for this trip, as well as the expenses of two delegates to 
the founding convention of the W.E.B. DuBois Clubs of America 
(DCA) held from June 19th to 21st, 1964, at 150 Golden Gate 
Avenue in San Francisco, California, were paid for by the 
CP of Missouri . 

A second source has advised that the organizing 
of a DCA Club in St, Louis was done at the direction and 
financial assistance of the CP of Missouri. MIKE ZAGARELL, 
National CP Youth Director; MORTIMER DANIEL RUBIN, National 
CP Organizational Director; and CLAUDE LIGHTFOOT, member of 
the National CP Committee, while in St, Louis have met with 
members of the St, Louis DCA Club to discuss its status and 
activities. 

The second source also advised that approximately 
twelve young people met on March 7, 1965, in St. Louis, and 
organized the DCA St. Louis Club. They elected officers and 
executed an application for a charter and membership in the 
National DCA. Two of the elected officers of the St. Louis 
Club are members of the CP of Missouri. 

Since its inception, the St. Louis Club DCA has 
been under the complete influence, domination and control 
of the Missouri CP.

) A source has advised that on October 26-27, 1963, 
a conference of members of the Communist Party (CP) , including 
National Functionaries, met in Chicago, Illinois, for- the 
purpose of setting in motion forces for the establishment of 
a new national Marxist oriented youth organization which would 
hunt for the most peaceful transition to socialism. The 
delegates to this meeting were cautioned against the germ of 
anti-Soviet and anti-CP ideologies. These delegates were also 
told that it would be reasonable to assume that the young 
socialists attracted into this new organization would eventually 
pass into the CP itself. 

A second conference of over 20 persons met in 
Chicago on December 28-29, 1963 for the purpose of initiating 
a "call" to the new youth organization and planning for a 
founding convention to be held. in June, 1964. 

A second source has advised tl^at the founding con- 
vention for the new youth organization was held from June 19-21, 
1964 at 150 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California, at 
lyhich time the name W.E.B. DU BOIS CLUBS OF AMERICA was 
adopted. Approximately 500 delegates from throughout the 
United States attended this convention. The aims of this 
organization, as set forth in the preamble to the constitution, 
are, "It is our belief that this nation can best solve its 
problems in an atmosphere of peaceful co-existence, complete 
disarmament and true freedom for all peoples of the world, 
and that these solutions will be reached mainly through the 
united efforts of all democratic elements in our country, 
composed essentially of the working people allied in the 
unity of Negroes and other minorities with whites. We further 
fully recognize that the greatest threat to American democracy 
comes from the racist and right wing forces in coalition with 
the most reactionary sections of the economic power structure, 
using the tool of anti-communism to divide and destroy the 
unified struggle of the working people. As young people in 
the forces struggling for democracy, we shall actively strive 
to defeat these reactionary and neo-fascist elements and to 
achieve complete freedom and democracy for all Americans, 
thus enabling each individual to freely choose and build the 
society he would v/ish to live in. Through these struggles 
we feel the American people will realize the viability of 
the socialist alternatives "

The constitution further states that this new 
organization shall be a membership organization open to 
individuals, or if five or more people so desire, a chaptei’ can 
be fonned which shall in turn be guided by the policies and 
principles of the parent organization. 

As of October, 1965, the headquarters of the DCA was 
located at 954 McAllister Street, San Francisco, California. 

Over the Labor Day weekend, 1965, the DCA held a 
conference in Chicago, Illinois. According to a third source, 
a nev/ slate of national officers was elected at this conference, 
which included Chairman Hugh Sterling Fowler, II (who, according 
to the third source, attended a CP cadre encampment held at 
Camp Midvale, New Jersey, in June, 1965, and following his 
election as Chairman of the DCA, attended another national 
CP cadre youth conference held on September 9-12, 1965, on a 
farm located in Northern Indiana, according to a fourth source); 
Director of Publicity Carl Ellenger Bloice (who was elected to 
the San Francisco County Committee CP in April, 1964, according 
to a fifth source); Educational Director Matthew "Dynamite" 
Hallinan (who in June, 1964, was stated to be the Youth 
Representative on the Northern California CP District Board, 
according to a sixth source) ; Organizational Secretary 
Tei’ence "Kayo" Hallinan (who, according to a seventh source, 
met in June, 1965, with the District Staff of the Illinois CP 
to discuss the proposed DCA Midwest Summer Project) , and 
Treasurer Susan Phyllis Borenstein (who, according to an 
eighth source, has attended meetings of the Youth Club of 
the CP of Illinois during 1965 in connection with the DCA 
Summer Project),

I, ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE 


Headquarters 


On January 14, 1966, SL T-1 advised that the headquarters 
of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens' Council (SLMACC), is 
Post Office Box 9683, Kirkwood, Missouri; that the SLMACC does 
not have a residence headquarters as meetings when called are held 
in rented locations. 

II. ORIGIN AND FORMATION INFORMATION 


On September 29 , 1964 , SL T-2 furnished a copy of a form 
letter addressed, '’Dear Patriot" and signed, "Organization Committee... 
St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens* Council, John H. Sutherland 
Temporary Chairman; Mary G. Burns Temporary Secretary", which were 
mailed to residents of the St. Louis metropolitan area. They bore 
the letterhead "St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens' Council 
Orga.nization Committee, St. Louis, Missouri." The letter announced 
that a group of local citizens had been quietly meeting together 
to explore what had happened to the personal liberties previously 
taken fur granted and all agreed that "we are deep in the throes 
of minority rule": that forgotten men got that way by failing to 
heed the admonition of the Great Seal of Missouri, "United we 
stand, divided we fall." The letter stated that the best way to 
regain majority rule waste have one strong locally autonomous organization 
built along non-partisan lines and geared to make the local and 
national politicians listen; that this was the plan of the Citizens^ 
Councils of America, and that it was proving its effectiveness in 
ccmmlinities across the country. The letter announced that an 
organizational meeting would be held on October 10, 1964, in the 
hall of the Electrical Workers, Local #1, 5850 Elizabeth Avenue, 

St. Louis, Missouri, at 8:00 PM, at which time guest speakers would 
be JOSEPH MC DOWELL MITCHELL, Field Director for the Citizens* 

Councils of Maryland, Washington, D. C. , and Virginia; and LOUIS W. 
HOLLIS, Executive Director, Citizens* Councils of America. The 
letter had attached to it a tear-off portion which was to be mailed 
to JOHN H. SUTHERLAND, Gravois Station, Post Office Box C, St. LOUls, 
Missouri, on which the recipient was to indicate whether or not he

0.?5 December 9. 1964, SL T-'l advised that 'an brgsjiizatipnal 
meeting of the SLMACG .was held at 8:00 'PM on December 4 , 1964 , at ' ' 

the American Legion Ball , 7800 Olive Street -Road., - St, . Louis', ' Missouri., *2. 
at 'which time the speaker was THURMAN SENSING, Executive Vice President 
Southern States' Industrial Council, Nashville , Tennes.see . who read, a 
speech on .racism that he wrote in 195'?. 

The May 1, 1965, issue of the.."St.- Louis PGst“Di:?patc.h". 
newspaper reported that the SLMACC had sponsored an organising 
.'meeting held on April 30, 1965 , at the American -Legion Hall, Post 4.00, 
Highway .141 and Gravois Road, Fenton , Missouri , at which LESTER ..MADDOX, 
Atlanta, Georgia, segregat ionist who owned the Pickrick . Restaurant in 
Atlanta, Georgia, was the principal speaker. 

On May 4,. 1965, SL T-1 adv'ised that the .SL?LACC contemplated 
circulating a petition to collect signatiire.s urging the Missouri 

Legislature not to repeal the law prohibiting, intermarriage between . 
whites and Negroes . Informant stated that the members of this t 
organization were fighting among themselves and that the' organization- 

was lio-t growing. 





SL 157-582 



SL T-4 advised that a re-orgaaizational meeting of 

the SLMACC was scheduled to be held in September , 1965, but 
that only two members attended the meeting; that it was there- 
fore postponed and a meeting to reconstitute the SLMACC was' 
held in November , 1965, to get thr group functioning again. 


The September 19, 1965, issued of the "St. Louis Post- 
Dispatch" newspaper reported an interview with Reverend WILLIAM C. 
BARLOW conducted on September 18, 1965, which identified BARLOW 
as the new president of the SLMACC, replacing JOHN H, SUTHERLAND 
who had resigned because of his business commitments. BARLOW 


stated that as the new president he planned to endeavor to form 
chapters in the larger cities in Missouri ; that the SLMACC was 
concerned over the trend toward anarchy in the United States 
under the leadership of MARTIN LUTHER KING, head of the Southern 
Christian Leadership Conference organization who BARLOW stated 


was under the 


of a Christian minister largely responsible 


for the law breaking , looting and ravishing now prevalent in the 
United States: that KINO and President LYNDON B. .. JOHNSON were 
equally responsible for the Los Angeles , California, riots. 
BARLOW said the Civil Rights agitation was largely Communist 
inspired and praised the police in ail areas for the restraint 


they have shown in the face of unbelievable provocation by Negro 
mobs who cursed , spit upon and otherwise taunted, officers of the- 
law. He stated that KING had proclaimed that his subjects would 
not obey any laws they considered unjust ; that they would decide 
for themselves what was good and what was bad; that President 
JOHNSON is equally responsible for not telling KING differently 
and then telling the American people that the laws of the. country 
will be obeyed . BARLOW stated that the two principal objectives 
of the SLMACC are States’ Rights and Racial Integrity; that the 
Bible teaches racial separation but the United States courts now' 
made up of politically appointed left wingers have ignored the 
fact that they have violated the religious freedtm of millions 
of Americans by forcing them into integrated situations. 


On November 20 , 1965, SL 'IV3 advised that the' SLMACC 
sponsored a meeting held at the St. Louis Baptist Temple , 4249 
Gibson , St. Louis, Missouri , on November 20, 1965; that Sheriff 
JA.MBS G. CLARK of Selma, Alabama, was the principal speaker and 



SL 157-582 


that the meeting was attended by approxistiateiy 3 50 persons; that 
LOUIS BOLLIS, Director of the Citizvens' Councils of America 

was also present; that approx imate 1 y 175 demonstrators picketed 
the meeting . Informant stated that CLARK ' charged that the Civil 
Rights ' movement was inspired by Communists ‘and defended his 
handling' of the Civil Rights movements in. Selma, Alabama.

FIVE '"POINT ACTION PROCRAM OF SLMACC 


On December 16, 1964,’ SL T-4 advised that the SLMACC 
distributed a leaflet setting out the following five-point action 
program; 

”1. Prevent Ra.ce“Mj liing . Racial integrity is essential 
to civil iziat ion and liberty. , The fate of the white 
man (and woman) in the Congo and other new .African 
nations is a stern warning'. 

'''2. Avoid Violence, Experience has proved that where 
iiitegr.ation occurs, violence becomes inevitable. 
Peaceful. ope,ration ■ of segregated schools in the 
South proves that social sep 3 >ration of the races 
is be.st for ail concerned. - 

”3, Mai.atair; and Restore Legal Segregation, .^.s growing,

brea.ks down, the social structure breaks down.

’''4. Defend States* Eights. The states are the source 

of all governmental power, local and Federal, Under 
the Tenth Amendment , the states .have t.he reserved 
power to decide questions of segregation, B'’ederal 
usurpation of any such power is a vio3.atiori of the 
Constitution.

intolerable I The 'Black Monday* decision must 
he reversed, the 'Civil Rights' Act repealed!" 

The above leaflet also bore a caption,' "What is the 
Citizens’ Council doing?”, and listed the following; 

'*IT IS. . . . ' '

"Protecting Our Sacred Heritage of Freedom from those 
who would submit free .Americans to. thought control, and who.

and conformity,

• STATI^D REASONS FOR ORGANIZATION OF SUIA CC 

Or December 16, 1964, SL T“1 advised that the 
BLMACC distributed a leaflet at organizational meetings captioned, 

’*Wtiy Must St. Louis Metropolitan Area Organize?"', prepared by 
the Organization Cominiittee , SLMACC, St. Louis, Missouri, which 
set out the following questions and answers which it indicated 
w-as fo'r white residents of St. 'Louis who sincerely believe that 
States’.' Rights and racial segregation must be preserved for the 
■best and good order of our country and for our children's frttures. 

"Q = What is the present racial situation in .St. F.,ouis? 

”A - For the past several years, local white 'moderates* 
have attempted to appease the o.rganized colored agitation 
groiips arid with tragic results I Their weii-iiitentloned 
efforts have served only to whet the agitators' insatiable ■ 
appetites for power. Like Hitler and Khrushchev the 
col'lectivists have announced their program. They will 
settle for nothing less than total integration of every 
residential area, every social gathering, and every privately- 
owned busine.s.s enterprise! The white majority must act before 
state coercion prevents us from doing sol 

"Q - What can be accomplished by .’-organizing a St. Louis 
Metropolitan Area Citizens’ Council? Will • it make my efforts 
more effective in preserving Individual freedom and the constitu- 
tional right to segregation? 

'■A A strong Citizens' Council in St. Louis, with thousands 

of members and capable leadership, can restore harmony, and 

st.ability to race relations in our community We must build 
a full-time organization in St. Louis, capable of maintaining 
an office and- being always alert to efforts to integrate our 

commuRity. 

"Q *• Why organize a. Citizens* Council? Aren’t there 
already too many organizations in St. Louis. 



SL 


157-582 


*'A Effectiveness of the Citizens' Council :moveraent 
is shown by results throughout the nation. Communities 
with strong Citizens’ Councils have maintained freedom of 
choi.ce in racial matters., while unorganised cities have 
surrendered supinely. During the past 10 years, the Citizens' 
Councils have demonstrated that organization is the key to 
victory! Our St. Louis Metropolitan Area Citizens* Council 
will enable every dedicated white resident of this area to 
unite effectively in a program for victory! 

''*Q - Who will run the St. Louis Metropolitan Area 
Citizens’ Council and set its policies? 

- YOU will! Each local Council -- including ours 
in St. Louis is completely autonomous. You and other 
Bfs.embe.rs select the officers and director.s who plan our 
program and determine our policies. This provides us v^ith 
sound, responsible local leadership. In addition, through 
our affiliation, with the Citizens' Councils of America., we . 
have the valuable opportunity to consult with leaders through- 
out the country, and with other’ local Citizens' Councils 
whose problems are similar to ours. 

”Q - Can the Citizens' Council work with businessmen to 
prevent forced integration and the deprivation of constitutional 
guarantees? 

”A ■■ Yes! Statistics show that integration is bad for 
business; By working to uphold property rights and freedom . 
of choice, your Citizens’ Council can make an important con- 
tribution to the continued prosperity of this .area. We can 
help iocaj businessmen resist assaults by Negro agitators. 

We can demand anid obtain -- vigorous enforcement of existing 
laws, a.nd safeguard the right of each business to operate as its 
owners see fit, in keeping with our American traditions. 

”Q ” Wasn't our battle lost with passage of the so-called 
Civil Rights Bill? 

''A - No, indeed! The 'civil wrongs’ bill will be just as 
unenforceable as prohibition. However, we must now become 
better org;anized. On .July 3, 1964, -- the day it was signed

’’into law -■=■ the Citizens' Councils of America began a 
nationwide campaign aimed at repealing the so-called 
'Civil Rights' act. They pledged to continue and 
intensify this effort, and to enlist the support of 
white Americans in every section of our nation who 
oppose this vicious and tyrannical legislation. Every 
citizen is perfectly within his legal rights in working 
to repeal the 'Civil Rights' act, 

*'Q “ Is membership in the Citizens' Council open 
only to men? 

■“ No I Women ax'e the guardians of our homes. 

They tralri our children. It is important for them to be 
members' We need the support of tne ladies particularly . 
the mothers. 

"Q ”■ As a merober, what will I, be asked to do? 

"A “ You will have an opportunity to v/ork with a 
committee of the Council, according to your own profession 
or 'field of interest. Special projects such as membership 
drives, addressing mail or telephoning members will require 
volunteer workers. The few hours you devote to the Council 
will be repaid in full by the inner satisfaction of knowing 
that you are doing something positive for your children and 
for your commiinity *s futui-el 

"■Q How much will it cost me? 

-'A “ A local Citizens' Council has Biiaimum monthly dues 
of $2 per member. This includes a subscription to the official 
monthly magazine, THE CITIZEN, support of the Citizens' Council 
Foriim, and the state and national associations.

Appropriate "Yes" or "No" boxes were to be checked. 


"1, Are you positively dedicated, as a matter of

to handle their own internal affairs?

, . , are our greatest enemies?

"A HISTORY 

"The first Citizens* Council was formed by fourteen civic 
leaders at Indianola, Mississippi, July 11, 1954. They 
counseled together in the wake of the U.S, Supreme Court's 
’Black Monday’ decision. For the first .time in American 
history racial segregation had been outlawed by judicial 
decree. The way of life regulating, the daily activities 
of tens of millions of Americans , white and black, lay at 
the mercy of power hungry Negro racists. 

"These early organizers realised that the fundamental issue 
was a struggle for power. It coiild be met only by bringing 
together a winning combination of responsible and able leaders, 
a mass membership, and the resources With whic.h to operate, 

"Word of the Citizens’. Council spread. Neighboring towns and 
counties began to organize . Three months later twenty counties 

formed the Association of Citizens' Councils of Mississippi. 

*'The mov'einerit expanded rapidly outside its home state. Then 
two years later, oh April 7 , 1956 the Citizens ' Councils of 
America was fo.rmed in New Orleans.
